    Apologies to the list for accidentally pushing the
    "Send" button too soon on my previous reply.  I hope
    that the formatting comes out better this time. :-)

    First, "dw", I'd be curious to know your name and
    where you live.

    Second, your question prompted me to take an inventory
    of the navigation books on my own bookshelf.

    As to "why", the best answer I can come up with is
    "Because". :-)

    Here is the list:
